The level of happiness has been going down over the last two years. It has been going down since 2009 and this decline has got worse in the first half of 2011.
The University of Vermont researchers studied over 46 billion words used in Twitter tweets. The study showed that the words used showed an increase in depression and a drop in happiness.
How about you? Are you as happy as you used to be? If not, what can you do about it? All the research indicates that happiness is strongly linked to the amount of control that you feel you have over your life. Stress and depression are the enemies of happiness. They are often caused by feeling powerless. Your life is full of problems and you can’t do anything about it. A huge amount of the problems in peoples’ lives is caused by bad government. In the big picture there is very little that we can do about that. We are ruled by one corrupt government after another (UK). They control every aspect of our lives and increase their hold constantly.
There is not much that we can do about all that. Most people want more happiness. So why don’t they get more. Simply put you don’t know how to go about getting it.
